Vikings | Willing to trade Christian Ponder (Mon Jul 28, 04:58 PM) - The Minnesota Vikings are willing to trade QB Christian Ponder. Ponder has performed well during training camp but probably will be the No. 3 quarterback.

Vikings | QBs splitting reps (Mon Jul 28, 01:12 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.

Our View: Ponder is obviously the QB who will drop out of this race soon. Bridgewater is a star student and hard-working, so he might push Cassel more than observers expect him to. The Vikings should have a truly open competition and not give Cassel any "veteran" advantage because he has been so mediocre in the past. The Seahawks weren't afraid to crown a rookie in an open camp QB competition, and it has worked out for them.

Vikings | Christian Ponder has done well (Wed Jul 23, 11:17 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel saw a majority of the snaps during spring workouts, but QB Christian Ponder has a chance to start, and head coach Mike Zimmer claims it will be a fair competition. 'Actually, I think Christian has done a very good job in the time that we've had him and how much he has improved in that amount of time,' Zimmer said. 'We're going to give everyone a fair shot, and preseason games will help determine it. We want someone who is going to take care of the football, lead the team in the right direction and when called upon be able to win football games.'

Our View: We'll see if Ponder and Cassel can hold off rookie first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater to be the team's starter in 2014. Ponder is in a make-or-break season with the Vikings. If he doesn't get it done this year, the team will move on with Bridgewater as their quarterback of the future. Ponder has shown the ability to be a decent spot starter, but he's mostly a backup-caliber quarterback.
